He with Us; We with Him
The fear of the Lord prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened. (Proverbs 10:27)
There is no doubt about it. The fear of the Lord leads to virtuous habits, and these prevent the waste of life which comes from sin and vice. The holy rest that springs out of faith in the Lord Jesus also greatly helps a man when he is ill. Every physician rejoices to have a patient whose mind is fully at ease. Worry kills, but confidence in God is like healing medicine.
We have therefore all the arrangements for long life, and if it is really for our good, we shall see a good old age and come to our graves as shocks of corn in their season. Let us not be overcome with the sudden expectation of death the moment we have a finger-ache, but let us rather expect that we may have to work on it through a considerable length of days.
And what if we should soon be called to the higher sphere? Certainly, there would be nothing to deplore in such a summons but everything to rejoice in. Living or dying we are the Lord’s. If we live, Jesus will be with us; if we die, we shall be with Jesus.
The truest lengthening of life is to live while we live, wasting no time but using every hour for the highest ends. So be it this day.
